How Massage Works

Are you interested in learning more about massage? At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna works to educate you during your massage about what your specific massage type aims to accomplish. Massage has many different health benefits designed to help your overall health and wellness. If you’re wondering how massages work, Therapeutic Medical Massage is here to help. We’ll go over the health benefits of massage and how massage impacts your whole body.

Massage for Relaxation

Massage is typically broken down into two categories: relaxation massage and medical massage. When it comes to a relaxation massage, you probably choose this massage as a way to relax and not fix a certain medical issue you may have.

A relaxation massage helps to open different pathways in your body. The ultimate goal after a relaxation massage is to help feel more relaxed. A relaxation massage may help to decrease your blood pressure and reduce your stress. With those decreases, you may also feel less anxiety and an increase in serotonin levels, which gives you a better overall feeling after your massage. The more often you have a relaxation massage, the more relaxed you’ll be following the sessions and the time between the sessions.

Medical Massage

While a relaxation massage helps you relax, a medical massage aims to treat a specific ailment. While Aruna can perform relaxation massages, she can also perform medical massages. Therapeutic Medical Massage specializes in different types of medical massage, including sports and rehab massage, pain relief massage, and lymphatic massage.

Overall, medical massage aims to help you heal on a better basis. Medical massage is a much more customized massage compared to a relaxation massage to help you heal. With a medical massage, healing pathways are opened in your body, which helps increase healing. Medical massage can improve your body’s circulation, which puts a stop to any type of buildup you may have.

Effects on Your Body

Massage serves as an excellent complement to any doctor prescribed treatment plans you may have. Whether you choose a relaxation massage or a medical massage, you’re helping to make improvements to your body and improve your overall wellness. In addition to the benefits mentioned above, regular massage appointments help to improve your immune function, which makes you healthier on an overall basis. Even if you use massage for relaxation purposes, you can still help ease any aches and pains you may be feeling. While you may feel a little sore following your massage, you won't feel your general aches and pains as much in the days following your massage.

Massage helps you on many different levels. Not only can it help you on a relaxation level, but it also helps your overall wellness. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, we work to ease any ailments going on in your life, from stress to a specific injury.
